Testing too early: You tested way too early. The tests, both of them, are invalid. You must wait at least fourteen days or till your next period is delayed or missed. You are washing money on tests that will not give you any accurate answers yet. ...Read more

Whats the reason for a negative positive home pregnancy test result?

Whats the reason for  a negative positive home pregnancy test result?

May be too early: If you are pregnant, your HCG level is not yet high enough to the threshold that the home pregnancy test was made to detect. Many times, the HCG levels are not high enough until you have missed your period (meaning you are at least 2-3 weeks pregnant). You can do a blood test or urine test at a doctor's office (which often detects much lower levels) to confirm your pregnancy. ...Read more

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate then a dr.S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!

Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more

What are the chances of home pregnancy test giving an accurate positive result 5 days before missed period?

Unlikely: Most home pregnancy tests (hpts) claim to be 99% accurate on the first day of the missed period. However, research suggests that most hpts do not always detect the very low levels of pregnancy hormones this early. Most hpts can accurately detect pregnancy 1 week after a missed period. ...Read more

Is a home pregnancy test the same as a doctors pregnancy test ?

Is a home pregnancy test the same as a doctors pregnancy test ?

Yes...and no: Docs can provide pregnancy tests that are essentially the same - the urine hCG detection. They can also obtain a serum hCG in the mother's blood, which will pick up a pregnancy much faster due to its high sensitivity. That said, unless you are high-risk, your doc may not be able to justify it to your insurance company. ...Read more

Is an at home pregnancy test accurate 21 days after sex?

Is an at home pregnancy test accurate 21 days after sex?

If positive: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
